5"8, 132 lbs, 17.5% body fat... you're pretty healthy actually.

You are in the right area for your body fat for women, especially for an athelete.

Women are suppose to carry more body fat than men.

1200 calories is waaay too little for you since you're so active and training for your spring session. The body goes into starvation mode when it doesn't get enough calories in and you're exerting too much energy over a prolonged period of time.

I'm not a certified trainer or professional, just someone who has struggled with my weight all my life and read up and know enough on weight maintenance and loss.
